Darby Karchut, Author

Darby Karchut is an award-winning author, dreamer, and compulsive dawn greeter.  A proud native of New Mexico, she now lives in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, where she runs in blizzards and bikes in lightning storms.

 

When not dodging death by Colorado, Darby is busy at her writing desk. Her books include the best selling middle grade series:

THE ADVENTURES OF FINN MacCULLEN. Best thing ever: her YA debut novel, GRIFFIN RISING, has been optioned for film.

 

She is represented by Amanda Rutter at Red Sofa Literary amanda@redsofaliterary.com
